MCKMQG July Announcements & Meeting Reminders
Our next meeting is Tuesday, July 5, 6:30pm at Stitched with Love. Social time will be from 6-6:30. We can’t wait to see you!

July Program: Labeling Quilts
Bring your ideas and examples of fun and creative ways to label quilts. We’ll share in small groups!

Nametag Swap
Last month we drew names, this month you’ll bring name tags! Can’t wait to see your fun creations.

Retreat
4 spots are still available for the summer retreat. Sign up now for summer retreat at Create-away Cottage  $130 for Fri July 22- Sunday July 24 (food not included- to be determined by retreat-goers at a later time). Remember to bring final payments for the retreat with you to the meeting this month.

Quilts for Pulse
Join us in supporting the Orlando Modern Quilt guild by making one or two heart blocks for a guild donation quilt. We’re asking members to make 10” heart blocks using this Cluck Cluck Sew tutorial. Please use low-volume fabrics for the background and a print  that reads as mostly one color for the heart. Use vibrant rainbow-like colors - Pick one: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue or Purple. Hearts will be arranged in rainbow order when we assemble the quilt during our Community Sew on July 29.

Modern Mystery Block of the Month
As announced last month, we are doing a new monthly challenge. Everyone who finishes their block this month is invited to put them on the front design wall so we can see all the fun variations- a fabulous prize will go to one lucky participant! If you need directions for the block, copies are available at the front register at Stitched with Love.  Tag your finished block from May on instagram with the guild tag: #mckmqg and #modernmysterybom

Bee Blocks
Can’t wait to see what our bee groups are creating. Check out the bee hashtags on instagram: #sewbeeit and #mckmqgb3

Show & Tell
